This week we are challenging you to compose a song. Most of today’s songs are made up of three sections: Verses, a Chorus, and a Bridge.  Think about the last song you have listened to… do you recognize these parts of a song?  Now it is your turn code some sections into your song…and luckily in EarSketch we have just the tool – Custom Functions.  This week you will code your own custom functions to create structure a song.  

  • The remix must be a minimum of 30 seconds but less than 3 minutes

  • It must include at least one stem from Common or Ciara

  • Your song must include at least custom function

  • Your song should be organized into sections (labeled by comments)

  • You should use other functions such as fitMedia (), setEffect () or makeBeat  or for-loops to compose your song.
